Been using MS Defender with regular Malwarebytes sweeps for years. I was foolish enough to install one of the MS Office installer I got from TPB. I know I know. I feel ashamed.
Anyway I did a thorough sweeping immediately and managed to weed out a few malicious stuff. Everything seemed fine for a few days until a bot used my IG account to post an ad yesterday. Suspended the account immediately.
Today Gmail prompted a security alert and said my email was accessed by an unknown software originated from my PC, at an hour it was not being used. Did a few scans and got nothing.
Any kind soul can show me what I may do next? I’m well prepared to reset my laptop. Just want to make sure I still have other options, and a good opportunity to learn.
Thanks in advance.
